NATIONAL SYSTEM OPENED. ——— The national system of Labour Exchanges same into operation on Tuesday. The success of the new scheme depends upon the close relationship between the lab ar ex- changes in different parts of the count' The exchanges will not make work; but t; y will bring the work and the worker into ennmuni- cation in a more effective way than h-ta ever been done before in is country, provided I they have the hearty co-operation of capital and labour. One hundred exchanges, with a total staff of between 300 and 400 persons, will be open this month, and 150 more within the following six months. Scotland and Ireland have six ex- months. Scotland and Ireland have six ex- changes each. Premises have had to be se- I quired all over the country, in localities con- venient alike for employers and workpeople. The eight districts into which England ial divided are: -London, Bristol, Birmingham, Nottingham, Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool. Posters have been displayed every- where, containing the address of the labour exchange in the particular locality. The registration will be simple. So far a# skilled and unskilled workmen arc concerned, the reference to the last employer will be thfJI chief factor; when the applicant is, 3ay, cashier, or a confidential clerk, references win no doubt be required by the prospective em- ployer. What the exchanges will do will bo to put the capable workman in a position to know where work suited to him is obtainable, and the employer what labour is available. Skilled workmen, assistants, cashiers, clerks, typists, labourers^—in fact, anybody of the great army of workers of the kingdom—can register their names at the labour exchanges, but domestic servants are, outaide the purview of the new Act.
